Smart Clinton campaign ad in Indiana...

Indiana and Texas are behind most other states on most measures of citizen well-being, except...

Both states have very progressive policies regarding providing behavior therapy for autistic children. Health insurance companies are required to cover as many hours of therapy per week as needed (up to 30-40 hours) for as many years as the child needs. As a result, families with autistic children from other states often move to Indiana so they can get the therapy their child needs.

Indiana had a lot of families with autistic children and Hillary's team is airing an ad in which a Republican mother of an autistic boy notes that he occasionally flaps his hands and says how offended she was at Drumpf for mimicking the reporter who has uncontrollable movements of his arms and hands. She goes on to say that she doesn't agree with Hillary on many issues, but she will be voting for her because she is reasonable.

It is a very good ad - mother and two cute kids - and I found it powerful. You can feel her anger but she comes off as very thoughtful, someone worth listening to.

1. I'll look out for it. Perhaps skip through the commercials a bit less.

Oh and hi from a fellow Hoosier

2. I saw the ad but I didn't know it was for Indiana. It's a very good ad.

Born a Hoosier.

Cheers!

3. I'm not sure it was just for Indiana - but it is smart to run in IN. :-) EOM
